P9 Z l -- P 5 Z2--P3 Z4--P22 ZS (MVjlMlh (Cim.), May Drop Bushel as Measure By 1.YI.K SCmVII.UXfl KANSAS Cm', Mo. H'.KI-. Like the old gray mure, the Mis nourl mule, the old bucket and walking plow, another lom;- ·tandlng farm tradition may lc On the way out. Thin is the bushel, R standard of measure used by farmers for centuries and possibly dating bark to Ililillcal times. Modern technology Is forcing the bushel to Rive way to mcas urine by weight. The reason- no one quite agrees Just what Is a bushel. You might say that a bushel Is the amount of something that can IK- put In a bushel basket, mich as apples at the super market. Hut In some states, the basket Is filled tn overflowing-In others to a line level with the top of the container. And again, contents of the bushel usually vary In weight. No itt-o bushels of apples weigh the same, and no two bushels of wheat do either. This variation has b r o u g h t on tho common practice of selling by the bushel- pound method, and causes con tiderablc mathematics. For these reasons, the U. S. Department of Agriculture, itatc ngcncies, and leaders nt th» grass roots, level arc attempting to do aw»y with the "bushel" as « term of measurement and use "weight" Instead, TIIK K A N S A S NTATK JIOAlin OK AtlKICUl.TIIKK re rently a n n o u n c e d that the change-over probably will mean that sometime In the near future, the state's wheat crop likely will be measured In hundred weights instead of bushels. Farmers presently take their ivhent to market, weigh It, and divide the weight by GO, the number of pounds set for a ·tnmlnnl bushel of wheat to weigh. The wheat then Is sold by the bushel. Hut lenders now sny. why not nell the wheat, and other products, by weight, rather than · through the process of dividing the total weight, then multiplying this by the price per bushel. Roy Fret-land, secretary of Kansas board, admitted there would be difficulties to the changeover but »ald they would be only temporary. The hardest thing, as Freeland visualized It, would be getting farmers to speak of yields In terms of "hundredweight per Here" instead of the common "bushel per acre," And of sentimental value only would be the passage of a long-standing tradition, one that served well through centuries before scales came along to make measurement by weight more practical.
